Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City is a game that gets a lot of hate some reasons I can understand others I can't. If your a serious Resident Evil fan then you should get this game as it is in my opinion a great addition to the series. I have to admit that it is nothing like other Resident Evil titles at all it's a completely new experience.
-So this game has a lot of good things such as its is very fun to play online with friends and other people both multiplayer and campaign multiplayer.
-The story in my opinion is very good and well thought out as it's all about the bad guys which ties into Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 Nemesis. The Spec Ops missions are fun as well showing off the good guys version of the story.
-The graphics are very good and feel like an up to date game.
-I like the leveling system that you have in the game as well as it makes you put lots more hours into completing the game and unlocking guns and abilitys.
-I love the new enemy designs for this game such as the Tyrant and Hunters which look great and give more of a challenge.
-The new infection system I think is a nice addon to this game so when your bitten or another player bitten by a zombie your infected and become a zombie if you don't get an antidote. This is a cool idea to me because it feels more like a real zombie life experience as this would happen to you if it was true and you were bitten unlike other Resident Evil tiltes where you are only hurt slightly.
Yes there are cons to the game as well sadly.
-First of all Games For Windows Live. Now I don't mind them putting a game onto somthing to make the experience more fun but all it does is just cause endless problems and breaks the game. First problem with it is that you can get a black screen when you start up the game on the main menu, next it crashes a lot when windows live crashes, It causes problems when trying to play online with friends or other people too, If you have Windows 8 or 8.1 then this application is hell for you trying to make it work is an absolute nightmare.
-Next con the AI. Now I know the Resident Evil games have had their AI problems but these AI are terrible. Most of the time they run into fire, into grenades, throw grenades at walls that are right in front of them, run into zombies and get bitten or run directly into enemy gun fire. They also sometimes just stand in one spot and don't do anything like the Ada fight.
-The last con which I think is just a very strange glitch is the guns sometimes either bounce up and down for no reason while you shoot or they are pointing at the ground but shooting at the enemys in front of you so its just a pair of hands floating with bullets coming out of them.
But despite all of these things I definatly recomend this Resident Evil game to all gamers and Resident Evil fans as it has a lot to offer and plenty of hours to play though. The only other things I'd like to say is to Capcom please first off all remove GFWL as it just ruins a amazing game of the franchise. Also put this game on sale more often all othe Resident Evil games go on sale so why not this one?
I give this game a big thumbs up.
